Again it was at my parish St. John Neumann during the month of September and the minister who confirmed me was Bishop Jugis. The people present were my parents, siblings, and my cousins.

A font is when someone get baptized by a priest with Holy water. it is located near the entrance of the church. Crosses are Christianity 's most common symbol. The cross is there to remind people of when Jesus was on the cross because he died for our sins. Roman Catholic shows Jesus being crucifixes while Protestant uses plan crosses.
What made Luther different from previous reformers was that while the others attacked the church and its corruption, he argued based on the root of the problem. The church 's doctrine of salvation and God 's free gift of grace. His opinion can also be considered reliable because of this. The words of God cannot be touched, changed of wronged, therefore as a source, the Bible is quite reliable. And what if Luther tried to change the scriptures?
Indulgences are payments in coin to a priest for the purpose of relief from guilt of sins, release from purgatory and assurance of a place in heaven. Luther found in sacred writing no support for indulgences, and he was convinced that indulgences were of no worth to a sinner as only God could forgive the sins of those who had faith in Jesus and hence spread this heresy. All the Church could say, and all it ever did say, was that temporal punishment would be reduced. The Tridentine Creed states “I also affirm that the power of indulgences was left by Christ in the Church, and that the use of them is most wholesome to Christian people.” The Council of Trent verifies the Catholic teaching that indulgences can benefit Catholic people as they pay for penalties on earth which if unpaid may punish them and be paid later on in Purgatory. This is represented in the creed as “use of them is wholesome to Christian
Other Christians, like the Baptist church, on the the other hand interpret Mary as an ordinary individual who gave birth to our savior and is not a Saint. Catholicism and Christianity both have the same core belief of the Lord, meaning that the Lord is the “Mediator” of all arguments and how there is only one God. Which is why these two religions of Christianity and Catholicism respect each other, unlike those who worship false prophets. When discussing Catholicism and Christianity both denominations have a belief in “ The Apostles Creed” which consists of what the apostles taught. The importance outlines the core belief of Jesus Christ.
His feast day is celebrated twice during the year: on 21 January and on 13 August. His title of Confessormeans that he suffered for the faith, but not to the point of death, and thus is distinguished from a martyr.

According to, bbc.co.uk, an online source, "Pentecostalism is energetic and dynamic. Its members believe they are driven by the power of God moving within them". This quote shows the true way that most Pentecostals worship and view the services that they attend. On the other hand, Catholics have their services or time for worship set up differently than the Pentecostal church does. They call their main service "Mass" and they state that mass is "the source and summit of the Christian life".
A helper of Father Isaac brought out an essence holder, which seemed very ancient looking, and held it up high for many to see. At first, I thought the essence was to just get everyone in the Church in the moment of the Father worshipping, however, I did not expect the Father to turn towards the essence and start rubbing his hands over the smoke as if he was washing his hands. This struck me odd because cleansing is mainly related to water, yet Father Isaac uses smoke. There is no connection between smoke and water, but Father Isaac continued on using the smoke by “splashing” it onto the altar. Father Isaac would cup his hands and “pour” or “splash” the smoke onto the altar just as if we were to splash water onto something or someone.
According to the Bible, the Holy Grail is considered to be a chalice. First of all, the chalice, also known as The Cup of Christ, is “the cup that Jesus drank from at the Last Supper and with which Joseph of Arimathea later caught His blood at the crucifixion” (171). Therefore, the Holy Grail—the chalice—is a historically authentic object which serves as an important symbol for Christianity. On the contrary, The Da Vinci Code portrays the Holy Grail not as an object but rather a woman; Mary Magdalene. In the book, “they claim the Grail Legend—that of a chalice—is actually an ingeniously conceived allegory.
Then when the leader of the angels Lucifer became jealous of god he was cast out of heaven along with other fallen angels, this is how evil entered this world. Saint Augustine argued that, “evil is the absence of something good and the only way for god to have created a world without evil would to be to create another god like himself” (Velasquez, 2014p.263). Other answers include god created evil so we could have free will to choose god. Richard Swinburne explains, “it is not logical that god would give us free will and yet ensure we always use it the right way” (Velasquez, 2014p.264). Lastly, John Hicks argues that we would be dissatisfied in a world without evil.
Many of the objects depicted in High Renaissance paintings were there for a reason. In “The Annunciation,” Mary is the largest figure and the main focus. She is shown facing front, with her head tilted toward the floor and her eyes almost closed. In her left hand she is holding the Bible, representing her devoutness to God, her right hand is raised, all fingers pointing up. Archangel Gabriel is on the left side of the panel, shown smaller and wearing the ornate vestments of a priest.
